The State of Our Nation
These are trying times we’re living in my friends. Guarantees we took for granted just a few short years ago are under attack. The Constitution and our Bill of Rights seem to not apply anymore. Our two-party system of government is more divided than ever especially in the United States Congress. Our nation is being invaded along our southern border amid the worst pandemic our country has faced in 100 years. Crime is surging in most major cities and the homicide rate is a scarry statistic.

Others will focus on veteran affairs, robocalls, infrastructure (I-4, Hwy 27, Hwy 60), bridging the conservation easements, gun laws and other ways we can help Central Florida’s 9th Congressional District. My goal is to bring real world private sector problem solving solutions to our United States Congress. I Hope you will join me on this journey and check back in or sign up to be sent reminders when new content is available.
